Affordable Apple iPhone Will Have To Come Later

The concept video imagines what Apple's video promoting its new iPhones will look like

The new iPhone XS

While the low-end model could be a great entry point for price-conscious users, the iPhone XS is sure to be the star of the show. While reports indicate that the all-new device could have a comparatively affordable price tag, we expect that it will be priced closer to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus models, which now start at $700 and $800, respectively. Rumored to be named the iPhone X Plus, iPhone XS and iPhone 9, it will be followed up in the next few months by the budget-friendly iPhone SE2. This is a bit of a price reduction from last year's iPhone X, which launched at $999 for the 64GB model. Truth be told, as long as Apple's 6.1-inch LCD model is somewhat affordable, it won't really matter how pricey its iPhone XS models are. According to earlier reports, the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone will bear a form factor similar to the iPhone 8 Plus. The iPhone 9 case seems slightly taller and wider than the iPhone X, which could also be the case (no pun intended) for the iPhone 9 itself. The successor of the Apple iPhone X is likely to be called iPhone XS.

Apple is also predicted to be lining up the announcement of a new, cheaper iPhone that will forgo some premium characteristics in exchange for a reduced price tag.

In the event that the naming of Apple's OLED models stays as leaked today, it will stamp a move from a naming pattern built up by the Cupertino-based firm. Along with the launch of the iPhone XS, a revamped iPhone 8 is set to be launched too. And for those who prefer a smaller handset, will we finally get an update to the ageing-but-likeable iPhone SE?

RAM capacities aren't officially disclosed by Apple but the iPhone X is thought to have 3GB so we'd expect the iPhone XS and XS Max to have at least this.

Article 13 requires certain platforms like YouTube and Facebook stop users sharing unlicensed copyrighted material. Run by a group called "save the internet", this deal doesn't seem to be quite done yet.

More details about Apple's 2018 line-up are likely to surface as we get closer to the official unveiling on September 12. It will also feature its direct predecessor's most popular feature, the Face ID.

The XS and XS Max has two 12-megapixel sensors, one wide-angle with an aperture of f/1.8 and 1.4µm pixels and one telephoto with an aperture of f/2.4.

The three iPhones all have Portrait Lighting too, but the XR only has three effects while the XS and XS Max have five.

IPhone XS Max will offer improvements as compared to the iPhone X in nearly every aspect.

"Over the last six years, screen size is the lone feature that we believe has demonstrated a consistent ability to drive both volume and pricing power", wrote KeyBanc Capital Markets.

The iPhone XR will start at £749.

iPhone 8 out of this batch may suddenly restart, hang or not to join.

Alongside the iPhone X, Apple announced a wireless charging pad that can charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods at the same time - something that's not now possible with wireless chargers based on the Qi standard.
